    Kucherov, Tampa’s most gifted player, had two golden chances to tie it in the 3rd, but couldn’t convert and Avs literally didn’t allow any other chances. Avs HC (Jared Bednar) has now won titles in the ECHL, AHL & NHL. And although he played for 3 AHL teams during his career, he never played a game in the NHL…

    The bottom of the cup is already dented. Oops.  I didn’t see what happened.

    And that’s a new band.  With the new band starting in 2018 and won’t move to row 2 till 2031 and retiring the band with 1965-66 thru 1977-78 winners.

    And poof!  All evidence of Toronna’s last cup disappears!
    :sieve:

    Ha…ha.. funny. Montreals drought is growing year by year just like Tronna’s.

    Kucherov didn’t quite seem the same after he got hurt earlier in the series.

    It’s a Damn shame Ben Meyers couldn’t play in the postseason. Would have been a hell of a ride for him with the Avs.

    Still amazes me who all gets in the Cup outside of players.  Each team can put up to 52 names in the Cup.  Players, coaches, management and staff.  So, I would guess 30ish players… then you have 6ish coaches, 7ish executive staff, 3ish equipment staff, 5 misc. staff (medical/strength/conditioning).

    The Preds now have Jossi, Eckholm and McDonagh with youngster Fabbro. So that is a solid 4 as well.

    Chicago is in a full rebuild. Plus, I think they got short changed in this deal.

    Don’t understand why you would trade DeBrincat. If you’re rebuilding he should be part of your core, he’s 24. Trade Kane for younger players if you want to rebuild, he’s 9 years older.

    You’ll get a way better package for Debrincat because of his age and term. They could still trade Kane before deadline too.

    NHL draft is a snooze fest compared to the NFL draft. Starts at 6, the 2nd pick was made at 6:35. Do we need 10 people from every team dragged up on stage before their pick? NFL draft is a party, this is dragging.

    DeBrincat will be a top 5 scorer in the league for the next 10 years.

    Huh…Cooley has been projected to be picked 3rd by Coyotes for months…obviously he was their pick all along, seeing as they passed on Shane Wright.

    Sucks he has to go to the Coyotes.  Team is awful.  Got booted from their stadium and have to play in front of 5000 people at AZ State.

    It has to be a factor to some extent. Mintyukov went right around where he was supposed to though

    Sorry I typed that out too fast on my way out the door. I meant he will be a top 5 scorer on whatever team he’s on for the next 10 years. He’s a great passer and scorer. He’s a lock top 6 forward for his whole career.

    Great interview: Tampa has been to 3 straight Cup finals why do you think they’re so good? “They make the best picks and they just got the steal of the draft”

    Maveric Lamoureux’s parents were giving the full level love effect for their som being drafted, to get a reaction out of @KevinWeekes @Buccigross & @MeghanChayka tonight. 🤣#NHLDraft pic.twitter.com/g3bu8tgJpb— Andrew Jerell Jones, Luke 1:37 (IG:twdbk3) (@sluggahjells) July 8, 2022

    His mom did daycare for my kids when we used to live in Hudson (2008-2009).  Great family.  Isaac was only about 4 or 5 at the time.  I remember their 4 boys were always on the driveway shooting pucks.

    I just noticed that Krissy Wendell Pohl is sitting at the Pens table as a scout and I’m sure she had input on their selection of Zam Plante.

    I don’t know about that, what Krissy would know. Pens could have just called Matt Cullen. He’d know more about Max and Zam.

    If anyone thinks it’s easy to operate when you’re up against the cap, then they’re denying reality. I’m actually kind of surprised that the Wild were able to move Tabot shedding $2.879M in salary for Gustafsson without having to sweeten the pot with pick/prospects or retain any salary. Also the Fiala deal looks pretty good getting a prospect and 1st rd pick considering it’s basically the equivalent of shedding $7.875M in cap space. I know LA is getting a good player back, but the number of teams that can take on that kind of contract is pretty small.

    Some of the other salary cap focused trades that have happened.

    The Golden Knights cleared $7.762M by giving away Max Pacioretty and Dylan Coghlan to Carolina.

    The Senators cleared $4.687M by including a 3rd and 7th round pick in the Matt Murray trade to Toronto.

    The Oilers cleared $3.2M by moving back in the first round and including a 3rd and 2nd in the Zack Kassian trade to Arizona.

    The Leafs cleared $3.8M by moving back from No. 25 ovr to No. 38 in the Petr Mrazek trade to Chicago.

    The Lightning cleared $4.2M giving away Ryan McDonagh for Philippe Myers/Grant Mismash with Nashville.

    But I was told by some that it is all Bill Guerin’s fault, unless he has brothers that are GM’s of those teams listed above. :unsure:

    Tampa and Vegas will continue to have to make some hard decisions in the next few years. Luckily for Tampa, they have a couple of rings to justify it.

    Those teams were paying (small prices) to move bad players on bad contracts. Guerin gave away one of the best players to ever play for the organization. At the age of 25.  Not really sure how you can even think it’s comparable?

    We’ll see how much love for the guy there is when they miss the playoffs this coming season. He’s basically getting credit here for what the socially inept, but roster astute Fenton did. 🤣

    Huh? Fenton made (count um) ONE good trade, Fiala for Granland…which Guerin converted to Faber & the 19 pick (the Swede) for Fiala. :wacko: The Coyle & Nino trades haven’t exactly aged well…

    Hartman, Zuccarello, Boldy, pretty important pieces. Also, they got a 3rd round pick for Donato & Coyle is on a 5 mil/yr contract that takes him into his mid 30s, ick.

    https://www.sportsnet.ca/juniors/hockey-canada-reveals-learning-about-alleged-2003-sexual-assault-involving-world-junior-team/sn-amp/

    This could blow up.  Sexual assault claims against multiple unnamed players from both 2003 and 2018 Hockey Canada World Junior teams.  Now hockey Canada is asking for anyone, past or present, who feels they have been a victim of sexual violence, harassment, or abuse from their organization to come forward.

     

    There is allegedly a video of multiple players from the 2003 team taking turns on an unconscious woman.

     

    Marc Andre Fluery was on the 2003 team. I am sure all of the players on that team will have to explain where they were that night.
